ECCG's fourth internal competition of the year was for images taken during any of the Group's shoots held during 2017. With no other theme to focus the entries, they were indeed varied as can be seen in the competition's gallery.
While the best picture overall was the brilliant portrait above taken by Noelle Lowney at last weekend's Innishannon Steam Rally, there were some great battles across the grades as the votes were counted.
When the final tally was recorded the spoils were divided as follows:
In Grade C, Paul Stack took first place with a winning margin of seven points from Miriam Keogh with Andrew Foley taking third.
Noelle Lowney had a very comfortable win in Grade B, a full 68 points ahead of Jim O'Neill in second place while Keith Johnson took the third spot.
Grade A saw the tightest of margins with Denis Barry holding onto a one point lead from Michael Hickey to win the Grade while Kevin Day was only another eight points adrift in third.
In the overall scores, Noelle Lowney had a thirty point cushion in first place with Paul Stack and Miriam Keogh taking second and third places respectively.
Well done to all twenty entrants.

With 28 entries, our recent internal competition, themed 'Motion', drew the biggest entry in a while with a wide interpretation of the theme. The image above by Zane Llewellyn won Grade A and also took the overall highest score of the night across all Grades.
The breakdown of the final results was as follows:
Grade A was a tightly contested affair all through the voting process but Zane Llewellyn won out by 9 points in the end from Gráinne Davies in second and Finbarr O'Shea in third.
Grade B saw Jim O'Neill once more in first place winning with 23 points to spare from Noelle Lowney in second and Eileen Upton in third.
Sonja Eisenberg came first for the second time on the trot in Grade C followed by Jim Curtin in second and Karina Leeson.
In the overall scores across all grades, Zane Llewellyn and Jim O'Neill had equal scores but the tie was split by the number of higher scores received giving Zane the edge and first place while Gráinne Davies took the third spot.
Well done to all concerned.
